Does this series go seven?
Didn't people say Spo should've benched Wade?
People forget, you can argue Wade was the best player in the 2011 Finals...
This lead has ballooned with LeBron on the bench...when he re-enters...
If Wade plays like this...game over, series over, see you on Biscayne Bay for the parade
Just when you think Dwyane Wade is dead...
Y'all clowns keep playing with DWade... Disrespect! Never doubt the heart of a Champion
Who makes a run to finish the third? Great game so far
Spurs are going under every Wade/James screening action. Making Dwade and LBJ shoot those mid ranges. They aren't missing though.
Pop's possible strategy: Wade+James gonna get there's. But they won't get beat by the "others". Heat role guys.
Guarding Dwade like LA guarded Rondo in 08'. Giving Dwade a head full of steam.
If the Spurs don't turn the ball over.. They are the best in the league at making the Offense see 5 bodies in the paint on defense.
Please let's never forget that Dwayne Wade is a Finals MVP! Dude got game.
Spurs have missed 2 shots.
Pop has Splitter on Wade.. Wow.
Joel Anthony is left handed.
Walter Ray Allen on the court already!
I said Doc Rivers took $35 million because he was offered $35 mil. Don't believe I said "coaches should have free will to go as they please"
Finally watching "The Doctor" @Nba
Dumars (cont).: You can’t take it personal. You can’t get upset with it.
Dumars (cont).: The same people that touted you, you’ll take some knocks. We haven’t gotten it right so that just comes with it.
Dumars on criticism: When you don’t have success, you open yourself up to all of those kinds of things. That comes when you’re struggling.
Dumars: There were coaches out there that we didn't go with that really really wanted the job
Cheeks: "Brandon (Knight) has some point-guard skills, he has some two-guard skills. ... I'm not gonna label Brandon as just a PG."
Dumars: "100-percent consensus" on Cheeks, no dissent.
Dumars: this was a 100 percent consensus. Phil was on board with it (Jackson) and Mo spent a lot if time with Tom Gores
Dumars: I do think you have to have a coach that makes a connection to today's player. They have to believe in you.
Dumars: "I think you have to have a coach who makes that connection with today's player." -- his big (maybe biggest) beef w/Frank.
Cheeks: "We have to think positive here...We can't have that negative thinking part," regarding trepidation about coaching.
Cheeks, on trepidation, given recent coaching history: "If we thought like that, no one would be coaching."
Dumars: There is always skepticism.
Cheeks had a conversation with a player about accountability yesterday. That player was Kim English.
Dumars, on why people should be confident in Cheeks: "I think people are always skeptical until you prove yourself."
Cheeks: This team has a lot of young talent. They need to play night in and night out. Accountability.
Cheeks: Everything u go through is a learning experience. I have to put my own stamp on this team. Unselfish and committed to the team
Cheeks: It's a challenge. I can't wait to get started
Cheeks: "It's a challenge...as he says, it was a long process, because I was leaving a great organization," in Oklahoma City.
Cheeks: "I'm excited to be here. The tradition of the Pistons is something I've known for a long time." Notes Dumars, Isiah.
Dumars: Mo has a steady hand. This is exactly what we need.
Dumars: "We are committed to trying to get back, we are committed to trying to get our team back to performing at the highest level."
Dumars: "Very long process, and the reason it was such a long process is we were just trying to get the coaching situation right."
Mo Cheeks being introduced by Dennis Mannion. Dumars also at the podium. Pistons employees cheer on command.
Got some good questions and a few comedians lol. Keep them coming
Happy birthday maybe!!!!???? kiley mcdermott

"you win with tough minded, strong, physical dudes" -Tom Thibedou @coach_lebo
Wow, JKidd the Nets head coach, great move, so happy for Jkidd
" Females who don't ask for much, deserve everything...”
If you're OKC and Doc is available, do you try to get him?
I wonder if Doc is hinting he's "ready for a change" means the decision has already been made to break up the Celtics...
Felt good to be back in the lab today, in Detroit.
Once a quitter.. Always a quitter. People who always run from adversity are just running into more adversity.
